Riverbank Heritage Day is a celebration of the cultural and ecological significance of rivers on PEI, highlighting education, conservation and restoration, history of rivers on PEI, arts inspired by rivers and watercourses and local food.
The event will include environmental groups as exhibitors and presenters with a focus on education surrounding rivers. Visual and performing arts inspired by rivers and watercourses such as crafters, performers, music, as well as story tellers who wish to tell stories of PEI rivers. We will also be holding kayak tours of Stanley River.

The event will be free or by donation, with all proceeds going to event organization, and watershed groups on the Island.
The 2022 Winter Woodlot Tour was amazing. We had over 600 visitors to see the 16 exhibits, plus free sleigh rides and hot cider. Many thanks to all the exhibitors, and to the Wildlife Conservation Fund for providing the funds for our event. The Winter Woodlot Tour was organized by Trout River Environmental Committee, Wheatley River Improvement Group, Hunter-Clyde Watershed Group, and Central Queens Wildlife Federation.
